Oink is having its avant-premiere as of 18th of February in Belgian cinemas!
This stop motion animated feature film is based on the book DE WRAAK VAN KNOR by Tosca Menten and has been directed by Mascha Halberstad. For her ninth birthday, Babs receives the piglet Oink as a gift from her grandfather from America. Her parents are not very happy about it. Babs can only keep him if Oink takes a puppy course. But then grandpa secretly has other plans for Oink. He enters the sausage contest of the Association for Fresh Pork Meat…
OINK is a film about growing up and relationships and trust. The relationship between Babs and Grandpa, but also that between Babs and Tijn. And Margreet’s relationship with her father, Grandpa Tuitjes. Everything is at stake all the time and that’s what makes the story so exciting for me. Director Mascha Halbersta
